MINI is proud to support the Motability Scheme - the national charity that is dedicated to helping disabled people become more mobile. We believe that it is important for us to meet the individual needs of every one of our customers. The Motability Scheme is a simple and affordable way of getting out on the road, giving you the opportunity to lease a brand-new MINI once every three years. Not only do you get your freedom back, but you also benefit from comprehensive car insurance, RAC accident and breakdown cover, a 60,000-mileage allowance and much more. You can make your MINI unique to you with optional adaptations and extras available. Discover more information at your local Barons and Chandlers MINI dealership in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire and London.
We are delighted to provide a selection of MINI vehicles on the Motability Scheme. Giving you more choice allows us to meet your unique motoring needs. So, whether you're looking for a great off-roader or a practical hatchback, MINI Motability offers something to suit everyone.
We are proud to offer the following MINI cars on the Motability Scheme:

Helping millions of people stay on the road since 1978, the Motability Scheme allows you to swap your mobility allowance for a three year lease on a brand new car. The scheme gives you the opportunity to keep your freedom by staying mobile.
Getting a car through the Motability Scheme is very simple. Choose the brand-new MINI you would like from our selection of affordable models, then visit your nearest MINI Centre for a test drive. Once you're happy with your choice, we'll complete your order for you. It couldn't be easier!
Our team of specially trained staff are here to guide you through the whole process, beginning to end, helping you find the car that's right for you.
You can use any of the following government funded mobility allowances towards a brand-new MINI:
The scheme is not exclusive to the driver. A parent, guardian or carer can qualify on behalf of a claimant if they are under 16-years-of-age. Learn more about eligibility by visiting the Motability Scheme website.
The Motability Scheme gives you access to hundreds of adaptations, ranging from basic driving controls to person hoists for wheelchair users. Your motoring experience should be as stress-free as possible and the adaptations available do just that. If you need help to drive, get in or out of the car, or stow your wheelchair, there is an adaptation available to suit your individual needs.
Arranging for adaptations to be made to your vehicle is easier and more cost-effective if you sort it out at the same time you order your car. This way, you can enjoy your MINI as soon as it is delivered with your adaptations already fitted. If that’s not enough, some adaptations even come at no extra cost.
Our team of Motability specialists can help you establish what you find difficult with your current vehicle and what adaptations may be best for you. Simply choosing the right model, like an automatic gearbox for example, can sometimes solve the mobility issue. Our friendly staff can help you find a vehicle that suits your needs.
Here are a few of the adaptations that are available for you to consider:
Adaptations to consider
|Limited mobility or control in your legs||Mechanical hand controls, electronic accelerators, steering aids and pedal guards|
|Limited mobility in your right hand||Mechanical hand controls or left foot accelerators|

|Wheelchair or scooter is too heavy to lift or stow||Car boot or rooftop hoists|

Designed to make your motoring experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible, the adaptations available can help you drive, get in or out of the car, or stow your wheelchair or scooter.
Not every car is suitable for adaptations, so before making a final decision on which car to have, we recommend discussing whether you would require any adaptations with our Motability specialists.
